. longtime friend of the clintons, no reference to democrat or democratic party in a state that is increasingly republican. i do not think any state has turned so sharply republican in recent times as arkansas, unless maybe west virginia for some of the same reasons. that ad was heavily criticized by democratic media advertising specialists, privately, not publicly. sophisticates perhaps are turned r said.what pryo you have to remember the arkansas electorate. in recent elections in the white evangelical christians have been close to 60% of the turnout. actually of appeal can make a difference. it is an emotional appeal but in heor's sense reveals what considers to be important or tries to sell that idea. up, aone poll has him long way between now and november. we will cover all the campaigns on the c-span network. steve from austin, texas, good morning. caller: good morning, thank you. rayburn,sk you, sam years ago, when he retired from sticker of the house he only had a few thousand dollars in his checking account. these guys are retiring as millionaires. are these guys a
can debate whether it costs jobs or not. i remember when we raised the minimum wage under bill clinton we had the best following years of job creation we've had in the last 60 years. you can't debate the fact that when you raise the minimum wage it has the effect of raising other salaries up and up as well so i think there's a lot of stuff in the democratic arsenal and particularly the point larry makes is a good one what. do the republicans have to say about the economy? cutting taxes and lowering regulation? we tried that in the bush years, and it was a total failure. >> no, no. hang on a second. front page of the "new york times." bill clinton in his second term or actually after he got shell lacked in '94, and he's proud of this, and i'm going to back clint on on this. he was a great economic president. you know why? he was a supply-sider in his second term. he lowered the capital gains tax and participated in a deal with gingrich on welfare reform, on free trade. he did all the right things. those guys cut spending. that's the kind of agenda we need right now. here's one for you.
line from arizona. caller: in the big picture, i think the trend put all this on hillary clinton. god bless one's a died in benghazi, but the republicans have nothing else to bring to the table. i think it is that important. god bless all the active-duty personnel. god bless america. host: we want to hear from bill joining us from texas. caller: good morning to all the listeners. i want to state that this is a cover upon behalf of hillary clinton and the department of justice's failure to follow through on their investigation. thank you. host: carol makes this point. you can send in your tweet. our next call is jack, joining us this morning from new york. on the independent line. caller: i think it is very important that the american individuals were murdered on the national press doesn't much want to cover. the networks seem to be given surpassed. i think in honor of those people they should be covered and not covered up. host: thank you for your call. the benghazi story is on the websites, but not a hard copy of the washington edition of both of those newspapers. roll call does have
polls and considered a top contender to a hillary clinton run in 2016. but now a report says some republican fund raisers even some in the new jersey area with considering jumping ship from christie for jeb bush as the former florida governor looks at a bid. jeb is also getting some support from his brother. >> i hope jeb runs. and i think he would be a great president. i have no clue what's on his mind. we'll talk when he's ready. i notice he's moving around the country quite a bit. >> doing well in polls. >> yeah. that's fine. they don't mean anything. for him i can guarantee he's not looking at a poll to decide whether or not he wants to run. it's internal. he's checking his core. as he said publicly, i'm thinking about my family. and he knows full well what a run for the presidency can do on family. after all, he's seen his dad and brother run for president. so jeb, if you need advice, give me a call. >> okay. it is worth noting according to a new quinnipiac university poll, jeb easily leads the rest of the 2016 pack in his home state. that includes marco rubio who i think peo
headed by hillary clinton couldn't have done more to save the ambassador and others killed. >> what prevented you from doing that? >> it is not what they did it was what they didn't do. they didn't come forward with stronger requests for action. >> they also requested what ended up being bogus talking points which ended up being an anti islamic video. at the white house briefing the spokesman was bombarded with questions about this. >> he has been very open about this. >> in response to bogus partisan claims by reporters about what had happened to the compilation of talking points around the benghazi attack we produced that material publically which showed we were right and they were wrong. >> the white house is still struggling to explain the e-mail that recently surfaced as a court order is showing the discussion of the white house talking points. it specifically mentions blaming violence on an internet video. the white house maintained, jay carney maintained this has nothing to do with benghazi but somehow was grouped in with a number of e-mails that dealt specifically with bengh
income people. >> that there is clinton's sort of capsule synopsis of the republican critique which he says was applied and failed. your thoughts? >> i think that one of the things you see there -- and i think it's good for president clinton to point it out is that you have a pretty distinct periods in economic policy making and the reason you have that is the fundamental conditions of the american economy change over time. one of the issues is the huge oil shock, that was a supply side shock. then you have in the clinton years interest rates that are too high. so clinton is a real deficit hawk. he brings down the deficit pretty substantially, interest rates come down substantially because of that. that is one of the contributors to growth in that period. and now interest rates are incredibly low and you don't need to worry about the deficit as much. there is a genuinely serious problem when a political movement decides that it has found unchanging economic truth and it doesn't need to update itself according to different times and you see that with the minimum wage. plenty i think put
bushs." with hillary clinton and jeb bush mentioned as possible frontrunners in 2016, do you agree? 69% of people said yes, and more than the same two or three families should run. >>> a dramatic rescue in england tuesday from the top of a historic cathedral. a 68-year-old woman fell more than 20 feet from a roof of the wells cathedral and landed between two turrets. she suffered hip, arm, and leg injuries and was stuck there for three hours. a rescue helicopter was called in to pull her to safety. tours have been cancelled at the cathedral until the investigation is complete. >>> opportunities to catch a foul ball at a major league baseball game are few and far between. some baseball fans may never get that chance. but when you do, it should never come at the expense of your date. so watch this guy at a diamondbacks-rockies game in phoenix. goes for the one-handed catch. but he manages to dump at least half of his beer on the woman to his right. needless to say, she was not even one bit amused there. >> don't even say anything about the loss of the beer. >> oh, the humanity. >> natali
read -- this morning by reading an excerpt from a memo by gene sperling to president clinton t relates it a minimum wage proposal similar to the one we're considering today. here's what he wrote: "your entire economic team believes that this approach is too aggressive and are concerned that it could approve damaging to employment prospects of low-skilled workers, as well as to the general microeconomic performance of our economy." bue memo noted there was a plus side to supporting the proposal. it would unify the liberal wing of the democratic party. well, today feels like deja vu all over again because even though our constituents keep telling us that they expect washington to focus on jobs, that's clearly not what they're getting from the senate. instead senate democrats are pushing legislation today that would cost as many as a million jobs in this country, legislation that the left flank of their party demands. that's their response to the pleas of our constituents to do something about jobs. the proposal that nonpartisan analysts tells us could cost jobs. these are the same washin
one year as ambassador?" well, i served -- i told secretary clinton when she asked me to do this -- it came out of the blue. office and me to her i thought she wanted another medal on east asia, where i had been working the previous four years. she asked me to go to iraq. i thought about it overnight and i agree to go for one year. have been april 2010, right in the middle of the government formation period. i agree to stay on until the end of august. as for security, one time in july in 2009, my motorcade was and it wasy an ied an unpleasant experience, we have lost a lot of people through the ample vice -- through the improvised explosive devices. i had the pleasure of hosting a rocket that landed in my front yard as i was walking outside the door. i had a couple of experiences. you do not really think about them at the time, but afterwards , you kind of wonder what was i doing there? why was i taking that kind of chance? many people had that experience. host: josh in saint peters, missouri, on our line for independents. caller: good morning. i love c-span. i just wanted t
. this is an opportunity that the nba hilary clintons and it took full advantage of it, think it's a wonderful day for sports in america. >> let's talk about adam silver. this is really a huge day for him. the first real test on the job he has been in, as you said, about three months now, and making the point that we've got to fundamentally change the way that we think and the way that we act. i thought he handled it very well. he was to the point and compassionate. i know you know him very well personally. is it your sense that commissioners in the past would have made the same decision as him, or what does it tell you about him? >> his predecessor david stern, who he worked for for quite some time, there was criticism towards him that sometimes he might have put a halo over donald sterling because let's not forget, we know and we heard about donald sterling has been in the news before for racial discrimination, about elgin baylor who was his general manager, about not allowing blacks and hispanics and jews to rent out because he is a real estate mogul in l.a. i'm not sure how to answer that ques
in another state, chelsea clinton is doing an event and tells people that she is pregnant. and then people are buzzing, what does this mean for 2016? probably nothing, but it means that people are already looking ahead. that is a problem exercising power abroad. it is a challenge that he needs to look at ahead. guest: it is a challenge being named a lame duck, so early in the second term, but the truth is he has not been able to get much done in congress. if power shifts to republicans in the senate, he does not have that one chamber to wooster his priorities, so it will be very interesting, as we said before, to see how the white house works y completelyiall control republican congress. i read earlier that he may start to worry too much and give away the store, the issues that they care about. hard to predict at this point, but definitely tricky for the white house, in that they still have two and a half years of governing and they are not able to get much of his agenda done. guest: and the republicans know this. if you have watched the nba playoffs, the team that is ahead and takes the b
to be washed. and unfortunately under our previous secretary of state, hillary clinton, she gave, in my opinion unwisely, the reset button to the former soviet -- to the former russian government and apparently didn't think that they'd push the button. they did. they pushed the reset button. and they pushed it in a way that has the soviet union looking at the united states and making the calculation that the united states is now a weak power, that we have weakened rselves and therefore now is russia's opportune time to seek to influence and pull back into the fold former soviet block nations. as we've learned from history, .hen a mad man speaks, listen mad men spoke in the form of lenin and stalin and tens of millions of people were enslaved in misery for decades. the same happened under adolf hitler, with a mad man who spoke and he murdered six million jewish people. that's why we have today the holocaust remembrance day. we need to pay attention today to the thugs and rulers that are making their mad statements. they're doing it again. and that's why again, why did the obama administration de

, and i think when i look at disrespect that was put up to george w. bush and to bill clinton and hillary clinton back in the 1990's, who were accused of every contained of thing, including kidnap, murder drug smuggling, all these kind of things, and the whole birther narrative doesn't sound like that much that's new in politics. but i think getting back to the affordable care act, all along even during the heated a.c.a. debate the public dent like obamacare, which is a republican term, but they liked the features that obamacare the a.c.a. offered, and that's still true. you're seeing a republican now talk about mend it, don't end it or let's repair, it not repeal, that there are things like -- well covering preexisting conditions and other features that the affordable care act offers that we didn't have before. there's a lot of positives that the a.c.a. can be sold, but that's what i was referring to earlier when i said that the democratic strategy is to not so much push obama as to push the care just that's where the real vote-getter
served as ambassador-at-large to the former soviet union during the clinton administration, and he has held senior roles on the security council and the state department. he is currently the professor of international diplomacy at columbia and a senior fellow on the council of foreign relations. his new book explores the personalities and little-known stories of foreign policy. it is called "maximalist: america in the world from truman to obama." i am pleased to have steve sestanovich back at the table. great to have you back in the studio. ukraine. >> yeah. >> russia. where are we? >> it seems we're looking at a rolling dismemberment of ukraine. and i think it may turn out to be too strong a statement. i hope so. right now, the way the russians seem to be handling this is to challenge the authority of the ukrainian government and to warn that if they try to assert its authority in the eastern provinces where the support is weaker that russia will respond. respond they will, as the foreign minister said, as they did in georgia in 2008, the threat of war. >> they're threatening war if w
